    As much fun as the new Aladdin movie is, there are several notable things that were left out from the original. Stuff that was a little too provocative for 2019. And for that reason, the creators decided that these things had to be, for lack of a better phrase… “fixed”.
    These are 10 Really Dark Things About The Original Aladdin The Remake Covers Up.

    Forgot that in the remake Genie turned into a human. In the original he was still a genie with all his powers just with no master.

    Speechless was a good song but I really hated that they broke out in a music video in the middle of the movie

    None of the changes were "desperately needed" and none of them were "necessary" either.
    However this is the first time when political corectness didn't overrule good story writing. The changes are absolutely coherent with the main story, and making Jasmine's character stronger also enhances it. She is of royalty, had a good education and stuff, it absolutely makes sense for her to have a strong political voice.

    The ‘where they cut off your ear if they don’t like your face’ IS ACCURATE. Why would they mess with this? (I know why. Don’t answer this.)

  • Michael Fleming

    So much hyper-PC bull shit. This story is of a time and place where women weren’t allowed to rise to power. There is nothing wrong with keeping that element as the is historical context (even though the whole thing is fantasy; but still, it’s based on old-school Middle East). Hell! Even countries in the Middle East East now don’t let women rule.

    I would like to point out that the original story arch had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with who became sultan. The law referred to Jasmine only being allowed to marry a prince as a precaution against an impure BLOODLINE. It was all about the next generations - NOT Aladin or Jasmine themselves. That's why the Sultan's line is "whoever SHE may find worthy" rather than "whoever IS found worthy" or something similar.

    Like the idiot I am, I just now (at the age of 28) just realized that 'harem', comes from the arabic word which literally just means 'women'. Should be pronunciated like hareem, deep 'h' sound with an 'ee' like in the word 'deep'. Mind blowed myself a little there - thanks WickedBinge

    The originals better anyways, I enjoyed the original film since the first second and my only complaint is the jafar liking jasmine thing but outside that it's great
    seen 5 mins of the remake and no enjoyment, I wanted it off, he meets jasmine too early and they removed the best line like "a horse with two rear ends is a rare sight indeed'' (or something like that)

    I'm sorry, I know that it's recently been all about the nostalgia in tv and movies etc., but WHY did they bother to make Aladdin in 2019? if you have to change up so much just to release the movie in 2019, you're kind of ruining the all the nostalgia which I imagine was the goal in the first place. Upon it's release, I refused to see the remake once I found out that Jasmine had a handmaiden/friend, because Jasmine said it herself in the original; she's never had any real friends. Raja was her ONLY friend. For me, that's a huge change and not one I was keen on seeing. Then I even more recently found out that they gave Jasmine some sort of POWERS? are you kidding me? And then now, seeing this video of more changes that I didn't even realize were made, I'm even more disappointed. Why make the movie in 2019 if it's going to have to be this much different? They should have just left the movie in 1992.
    Thanks for ruining my favorite Disney movie by taking at least 90% of the actual nostalgia out of it.

    I loved the new Aladdin so much it’s become one of my favorite movies but I think some of the changes were kinda dumb, especially the lyric changes.

  • Jessica Abbott
    Jessica Abbott 11 days ago

    One change I like is that the Sultan is not a bumbling idiot like in the original, but is actually serious and smart, although still getting manipulated/hypnotized by Jafar.

  • Lee Bee

    was there a woman sultan? if so fine, if not, why did they have to change to make modern girls happy, i have to deal with the fact history will show black culture in lesser position generally. that was the past...to not have some accuracy when they are correcting everything else.... for political correctness is typical of humans who don't want to imagine people did bad things in the past...but i still enjoyed, yes including the extra lady for Jasmine. better all round. but cartoon Aladdin has its place.

    I think I understand that it’s a very different era now than it was back in the 1990s. We didn’t have the internet back then or social media so people weren’t really aware of how disturbing these things really were. I should be grateful that the modern versions cut out this kind of stuff that would just gave people nightmares if they were shown today.

    Bruh...... the original animated film is about ALLIDAN and NOT JASMINE so duh there were no other female characters or character development for Jasmine; it wasnt about her. It was about Alladin and things back in the early 90' s were so different and people weren't as sensitive as they are now. Dont deny it cause that would just prove the sensitivity

  • AngelDRose
    AngelDRose 15 days ago

    Yeah. I still think Jafar would have been better older and creepy. That was the point. He was old and creepy. A side effect of being evil. Making him young and hot kind of defeats the purpose

    The harem girls knew Aladdin's name because of rumors. I got it like they were some girls in training to become wives or girls living with their aunt or something (making sure they are getting married of course as a goal).

    Yea it doesn't mean villains must be less attractive than heroes it is their acting and storyline that matters
    In Harry Potter films tom Felton acted the character of malfoy and he is really handsome but that didn't stop me from hating him he acted well.
    Hate is what villains need that makes them real winners ❤

    Middle eastern people dont call women sultan that is for men. When a women becomes sultan we call sultana not sultan. It like calling queen Elisabeth, king Elisabeth.

    Well, the main problem is generalizing what you see in an " Arabian Night" fairy tale to the whole Arab culture. Don't judge nations by a Disney movie!

    The other detail that changed was how they dressed Jasmine. They dressed her more modestly than in the original version.

  • zahra zarqaa

    I understood the changes they made here and there but i was most disappointed with how they established movie!Aladdins character..like in the cartoon, he was the lowest of low in Agrabahs society right..a street rat..no one had his back, had no friends except Abu, which then (*i* think) leads to how important his friendship with genie and carpet were to him....but then yeah, all they made him was street-smart in the movie, which is fine but kinda takes away the contrast of his relationship with jasmine, i feel..a pairing of the lowest and highest in Agrabah society etc.
    Lol i watched the cartoon again immediately after the movie to do a side-by-side comparison and "refresh" my memory..but thats my biggest reason to give of why the movie felt a little flat to me..

    Every thing is okey but still cant get the point that they changed friday to sunday. İt is a middle east story, do we reform it and pretend like it is not?

    Unpopular opinion:
    I didn't like Will Smith as a Gennie. He's not impulsive and energetic enough.
    Only Jim Karrey would've pulled it out.

    The thing I love most about the Aladdin remake (and honestly Beauty and the Beast too) is it brings the female characters a stronger role. Ultimately, making them *actual* characters. Changing Jasmine's main goal from wanting to marry whoever she wanted to becoming SULTAN? That's a huge character shift, and one that makes for an empowered woman and not a girl who only cares about who she gets to marry.

    Kudos to Disney for giving Jasmine the characterization she always deserved.

  • Kelly E

    A woman sultan? glad the pussies got their feel goods, but disney really has never been much for good ideas anyway. That's why tjeir shit is just knock off money grabs, and the adults who laud of their pitiful garbage are stunted old children .

  • Kelly E

    It's only offensive if it is done in malice or untrue. The whole world was barbaric then, and hand removal is FAR from unheard of.
    Jafar a negative stereotype? yeah, duh..... he was an evil wizard elder, shit this generation sucks.

    Sorry, but the Genie will always belong to Robin Williams. That was his character, and no one else can do it justice. Not to say Will Smith didn't do a good job; he's a fantastic actor, but his performance will never match up to Robin Williams character.
    Also, all the SJW ass kissing with classic disney movie remakes must stop. Some things had to change, the female costumes were an obvious issue along with the lack of Jasmine's female servant/friend that she definitely would have had for the audience to enjoy the interaction between the two characters. But the lyrics changes did not need to happen, and the changes to Jafar watered down the creepiness-scariness of his character, his best quality in the original animated film in my personal opinion. The actor they chose was way too young, I would say that animated Jafar was around fifty, live action Jafar was thirty. The way animated Jafar treated Jasmine seemed to send a clear message to kids, "don't do this kids, it is wrong".

    I've noticed that a lot of movies that have been made in the last 15 years or so they tend to make it so we start identifying with the villain more versus always immediately rooting for the hero. (example - Joker from Dark Knight)

    I mean I honestly think they over sensitive-ized( how ever u say it) this on certain parts but I do understand. And with what they did in the original movie with how they did it some of it was historically accurate. Btw I’m just stating my opinion so no hate plz!

  • Luna-Rika UwU

    I feel the lyrics were definitely changed for the better. It's more appealing for children (like my niece *cough coughzzz*) to sing along too.

    Yall know what's crazy? In the ORIGINAL film the majority were complaining about the scene where Jasmean seduced Jafar. Saying it was inappropriate, "disgusting", shes 14 and hes 47, how its uncomfortable, "cant watch this" when really it was lowkey empowering because men are very lustful . As a girl she took advantage of that because it's a vulnerability for men. Now when they cut that scene out in the new film...its a problem, "I dont know why they didnt add the scene where Jasmean seduced Jafar". Maybe itd have been on there if people, the very ones that say "people are too sensitive nowadays" stop being sensitive themselves and look at the message and the female power that is mostly never acknowledged. It's also a remake....its not supposed to be an exact copy. Everything he listed was exactly criticized in the original. Now when they removed it in the remake to make it better since there were so much complaining it's a problem. People are never satisfied. Me personally I loved the film and have zero complaints.

    Things I did not like about the new Aladdin
    1.skips jasmine leaving
    2. In the middle of Arabian nights in the new one they just have jafar at the cave of wonders it doesn’t show how they got there
    3. Jasmine so post to be lonely that’s why she runs away
    4.jafar was more evil in the original in the new one he’s not as evil

  • Jake Sangria

    But slaves and marrying 14 year old girls are simply appropriate for the culture we're talking about you. Secondly and empowered female sultan ancient I wrapped?. Good luck with that women murdered her first day

  • Mina

    I always thought jafar was handsome in the original. I think his powerful and mature stature is represented well/better in the cartoon. He is an accomplished and intimidating man. Live action didn't do him justice.
    As for the 2ndary characters looking "very ethnic", I think that's a misinterpretation. Anytime you see them trying to portray someone younger, they soften their features by making them a little more dainty to show youth. For example: the homeless children (do not have the "stereotype hooked noses"), the harem girls (meant to look like teens) etc. It's just how they draw younger characters.

  • SugaKookies A.R.M.Y

    So what I'm seeing from the comments is the remake is just a politically correct Aladdin. Everyone tries to politically correct everything which pretty much ruins it. The problem is people deny the facts and truth. Oof.
